Afaf (2019) – Writer/director


When a law passes that requires female university students to undergo virginity testing, an assumed virgin must go through familial hoops to avoid the hymen verdict.


The government implements a law to test women at universities to ensure their hymen and – thereby their purity – is still intact. Having only one day until her virginity test, Afaf must do the impossible to pass the exam that threatens to wreck her academic career. At home, a conflict is brewing, as the dynamic between Afaf and her father is on the edge of disintegration if she is found out. Her only hope is to crash an underground women’s class that promises her a shot at passing the virginity test.
